A tragic love triangle between a beautiful English girl, an English gentleman, and a half-English, half-Egyptian plays out among the ruins and under the desert stars of 1920s era Egypt. The saga ends, as all love triangles must, in tragedy upon the desert sands. (Summary by Sibella Denton)

I am not sure what to say about this book. It was okay. I could not really invest myself in any of the characters. The dog Wellington was more likable than his mistress. I liked the character of Hugh as I felt sympathy for him. This book I think tries to be a little bit Romeo and Juliet. The writer goes off on a lot of tangents and I found myself thinking just get on with the story.
The narrator had a good clear voice, but she read in a rather monotone way which was also made the story somewhat less interesting.
